As the murder rate keeps going up and the left keeps intensifying its efforts to take our guns away, many Americans have just one question on their minds…
What gun should I buy to defend my home and family? This guide is for you.
Buying the Right Gun for Home Defense
The choice of what gun to buy for self-defense at home really depends on what your experience level is with guns and how much you go to the range.
If you want a gun that’s easy to fire and where you won’t need to practice shooting much to get the hang of it, you will often be best off going with a revolver. They’re simple; they’re accurate and you can easily see if they’re loaded, so no guesswork is involved.
You put in rounds, secure the cylinder, and then aim and fire. It’s really that simple when it comes to a revolver. They are also small and can be put into your bag or purse easily; this way, you can be protected when you feel in danger.
Next up, you have the option of getting yourself a semi-automatic pistol. They take slightly more training to learn how to master. Also, they are a bit bigger in size, making them a bit trickier to stow properly.
However, there’s nothing wrong with getting yourself a Glock if that’s what you have your eye on for home defense.

Next up is the option of getting yourself a shotgun.
These can actually be a great option for home defense. The affordable prices will pleasantly surprise you and the pump-action method of firing is easy to learn and will keep you safe both night and day.
Shotguns tend to scare criminals and burglars; that’s because they blast out devastating 12 and 20-gauge rounds or buckshot that can put a pretty sizeable hole in a target. Not many people go up against a shotgun and win; let’s put it that way.
Keeping a pump-action shottie in your home to defend yourself and your family is often the best option. It can be safely stored, quickly deployed, and fired rapidly and easily in the event of an emergency situation.

The Bottom Line
I personally recommend a shotgun or revolver for home defense.
At the end of the day, everyone is different, though; the right gun for you will be a matter of trying out various options and speaking to a qualified salesperson about the pros and cons.
I also urge anyone buying a weapon to get a bit of extra training and go to the range regularly. The better you get at shooting, the safer you will be and the more confident and secure you will be around weapons.
